I am currently a post-doctoral research associate in Computer Systems Architecture at the University of Edinburgh. I am passionate about compilers (along with debuggers, linkers, etc), operating systems and databases.

I love everything about compilers, from front-end parsers, middle-stage optimisations and back-end code generation. I especially love the LLVM framework, and I work on a high-performance instruction set simulator where the architecture is generated from a high-level description.

I'm also a keen Linux sysadmin, with experience in designing Kerberos and LDAP installations, and providing interoperability with different platforms for network services such as AFS, CIFS, DHCP, DNS, RADIUS, NTP and anything else required to run a corporate network.

I am big fan of signalling on UK railways, and in my spare time, I enjoy model trains, and building electronic circuits. Combining these two interests, I enjoy building circuits to control my model trains.
